About Becky Pepper
Low Brass Performer, Arranger, Educator
Becky has always been fascinated with instrumental music, especially low brass, and she is passionate about sharing that with others. This led her to create the online store Trumpet_Trombone to share resources and arrangements for brass instruments for everyone.
She gained her degree on trombone at the Birmingham Conservatoire, studying with Bob Hughes (RSNO, Philharmonia, LSO) and Ed Jones (CBSO). She also learned valved instruments, studying Euphonium with Katrina Marzella (Black Dyke Band) and bass trumpet with David Purser (Phillip Jones Brass Ensemble). She has since gone on to gain her LRSM performance diploma and the Certificate of Music Education.
She is now in demand as a performer, a solo recitalist, a teacher and low brass coach across the midlands. Becky’s performance credits include the English premiere of Karl Jenkins’s ‘Dewi Sant’ in Birmingham Town Hall with Gemini Brass, with whom she holds the third chair.
In 2016, her debut book 'Music for Children' was published, introducing everything musical in a fun, interactive and approachable way.
She is an Edwards Featured Artist and plays on a T350-CRE with a custom rose-brass bell. Her Euphonium is a Besson Prestige 2052, which she plays on an SM4 mouthpiece.
